    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 9 months - interviewed at Nationwide Building Society in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was the most shambolic process I have ever been through. Very slow and unprofessional. Did not want to proceed after first interview. Hiring manager did not answer emails in a timely manner. And when he finally did, he sent an email which was meant for another candidate to me

    I had to complete numerical and verbal reasoning tests. Was invited to an interview and asked to prepare a presentation on the role of digital media. I did not get the job and was not notified of this decision by either phone or email, which I found disappointing and discourteous.

    It is a competency test based interview. The interviewees are very friendly and welcoming. I loved the fact that this is only dependant on merit and not on reccommendation. If you do well and give a good impression you'll be given a chance.
